7:01 am
now. important news for women in their fight against high cholesterol. first we take a look at today's eye opener. your look at the world in 90 seconds. >> i know the speaker is not very happen,y speaker gingrich. he's not feeling very well. >> mitt romney looks for a knockout blow in florida as voters head to the polls. >> you cannot get to be president if you don't have the courage to tell the truth to the american people. >> ♪ for purple mountain's majesty, above the fruited plains ♪ >> gentlemen, team up in a super group. headed home rescuer jessica buchanan. >> they held jessica and another humanitarian worker in denmark for three months. oh, [ bleep ]. oh, my god, what is going on. florida investigates a deadly chain reaction crash as 911 calls capture the chaos.
7:02 am
>> how many vehicles have been involved that you've seen so far? >> we cannot see, ma'am. 15 suspected al qaeda terrorists killed in yemen. just released audiotapes from air force one from the day president kennedy was assassinated. talk to me. all that. >> no dancing. >> and all that matters. >> americans will eat about 450 million chicken wings on super bowl sunday. >> that's just at governor christie's house. >> this place is blowing up twitter. >> on "cbs this morning." >> oh, my goodness. welcome to "cbs this morning." it is primary day in florida. the biggest contest so far in the presidential race. the polls show that republican voters there prefer mitt romney.
7:03 am
>> those latest numbers show romney leading newt gingrich by 20 points. political correspondent jan crawford begins our coverage in tampa. jan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, guys. good morning to the west coast. it's hard to believe that it was just a week ago that romney was down in thes polls struggling to get his momentum back. today the is not whether he'll win but by how much. >> with a turnout like this i'm beginning to feel like we might win tomorrow. what do you think? >> reporter: with the polls showing a commanding lead and all signs pointing to victory, romney sounded so confident monday that he mocked the former house speaker. i know the speaker's not real happy, speaker gingrich. he's not feeling very excited these days. i know it's sad. >> reporter: despite plummeting in the polls gingrich continues to hammer romney as too liberal to win. >> we nominated a moderate in 2008 and he lost. mitt romney's more liberal than either of those candidates.
7:04 am
>> reporter: but win or lose gingrich is vowing to stay in the race until the end saying he'll be in tampa in august at the republican convention. >> why would anybody in the establishment think that a massachusetts moderate which is a liberal by republican standards, pro-abortion pro-gun control, pro-tax increase, pro-gay rights why would they think he's going to be able to debate barack obama? >> reporter: with reporters on hits campaign plane a relaxed romney dismisses the remark. >> that's usually the case when you lose. when you say i'm going to go on no matter what happens, that's usually not a good sign. >> reporter: after florida romney is expected to do well in the next five contests, nevada, maine, colorado and minnesota hold caucuses which require what gingrich does not have, a substantial organization. he's not on the ballot in missouri. >> reporter: romney is not going to let up. they thought gingrich was down and out after new hampshire and
7:05 am
iowa. he finished at or near the bottom in those states only to rise up again in south carolina and win. they're going to do everything they can to stop another newt comb back as they go west from florida. >> so where does it go from here? do we see a lot of attacks on newt gingrich so that the romney camp will not have to face one more time newt rises again? >> reporter: well you will see those attacks continue. here in florida they've been very tekttive. romney has spent millions and millions of dollars, charlie, on negative ads attacking gingrich for his characters ethics. reminding voters for that reprimand he got as house speaker. voters are telling me they're worried about gingrich's baggage. they want someone who can beat president obama. they're afraid obama will use that against him and keep the democrats in the white house. romney's team will continue these attacks as it goes forward to the west. >> jan thank you so much. also covering florida is cbs evening news anchor scott pelley. >> reporter: good morning,
7:06 am
charlie. >> "the new york times" had an interesting quote. they said, is florida going to be the end of the beginning or the beginning of the end? what does it look like in florida? >> reporter: oh, charlie, i think you have to consider this to be the end of the beginning, perhaps. you can't say that it's over until it's over particularly because of the way the republican party has changed the rules this year. they've turned most of the winner take all states into proportional states, which means that you get delegates if you come in second or third. so that's what gingrich is counting on. this is not going to be a great february for gingrich as jan was just saying but if he can get to the super tuesday states on march the 6th he'll be competing in a number of southern states. and so as we move forward here the delegates will be handed out in a proportional way. gingrich could hold on for a long time. >> what's the biggest difference in the romney team between south carolina and the candidate -- between south carolina and the expected results in florida? >> reporter: well certainly the
7:07 am
change here is the electorate here in florida. this is a much mother diverse state than south carolina much larger state than south carolina. we were out last night talking to a number of voters in a great cuban watering hole here called versailles. we noticed half of the people we talked to made a decision for mitt romney. the other have said they were undecided. that doesn't suggest very strong support for newt gingrich at least in our unscientific poll that we took last night. don't count out the tea party vote here, charlie. the tea party is very strong here in florida. helped elect the governor. helped elect senator rubio. about 1/3 of republican voters here according to our cbs news poll, identify themselves as tea party members. that is a show of strength for newt gingrich. >> scott a show of strength for him, as you mentioned. what's interesting about the state of florida, as you know in many ways it's been referred
7:08 am
to by many people as a microcosm of this country. it's a difficult place to campaign because there are a lot of people from different backgrounds to win over. >> reporter: well, there certainly are. erica, the important thing to note here, too, is the candidates have timely arrived in a state that was very hard hit by the great recession and has been suffering for a very long time. the unemployment rate here is about 10%. that, of course is quite a bit higher than the 8.5% that we see nationwide. the construction industry has collapsed. just last july the space shuttle program ended. 7,000 jobs were lost in bravard county alone. this is a state where the candidates are really facing a lot of angry voters who are concerned about their futures and the futures of their families. >> two other things we'll keep a close look at. one, hispanic vote and also what happens to rick santorum. scott, thank you so much. we'll have much more on the
7:09 am
florida primary tonight on the "cbs evening news." thanks again. the independent political groups known as super pacs have been super busy in florida. so far spending more than $44 million on the presidential race. that's according to one estimate. that is more than four times as much compared to this point in the 2008 campaign. massachusetts republican senator scott brown have a agreed to discourage super pacs from taking sides. senator brown joins us on capitol hill. good morning. >> hi. good morning. >> so does this bill go far enough senator, in terms of what you think ought to be done? will there be changes on the house side? >> listen, bottom line is we should act like every other member of the united states and be subjected to the same lies. based on the "60 minutes" piece i learned there is a potential problem of members of congress their families employees,
7:10 am
office help using insider non-public information for personal financial gain. so, yes, this bill is a very strong bill. it has a lot of support, as you saw, in the vote last night. we're going to be working on managing the floor dood today. senator collins and i are very committed to making this happen and re-establishing the trust of the american people. >> there's also the question of super pacs and you and elizabeth warren have disagreement. do you think there is something that needs to be done about super pacs in the presidential campaign. >> i can only speak to my campaign. i called for this last election. i called for it this election. i'm glad professor warren wanted to join with me. the difference between other pacs is if a super pac comes in and runs a positive or negative ad i would have to pay 1/2 of that ad to a charity of the other person's choice. these people will hurt the individual candidates. i find that mostly they're false and misleading. we can talk about our own
7:11 am
records or lack thereof on other own. >> so you wouldn't then senator, make the call for perhaps a similar agreement when it comes to national campaigns, when it comes to the presidential election? >> i'll leave that up to the candidates that are running. i know in my race in massachusetts i think the voters deserve better and we came up with a plan. i think it's a good plan. i'm hopeful that she'll stick to t. i'm looking forward to obviously running a very clean campaign like i did last time. i'm going to draw a line in the sand and stick up for my record. >> do you call yourself a massachusetts moderate senator? >> i'm a scott brown republican. i read the plans, see how they affect massachusetts and our country and debt and deficit. i'll leave the labeling to other people. >> one of the other people that's labeling is newt gingrich. he says that mitt romney the former governor is not a mod der -- is not a conservative but is' a moderate. you know him. is he a conservative? >> sure. mitt is one of the nice eggs, honest, hard working men i ever
7:12 am
met. when it comes to the economic issues there's nobody that can compete on either side of these issues to help get our country back. he's got my vote. i encourage everyone else to get out and vote for him. >> what did you think of his singing in florida? >> yeah. he's not going to be on "american idol" any time soon. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. and you can find more information about the campaign of course on our website, cbs including the latest delegate count. you can also follow the florida primary throughout the day and this evening on twitter as well as "cbs this morning." taking a look at some of the other news this morning. a major airstrike in southern yemen. at least 12 al qaeda militants were killed in what witnesses say was a u.s. drone attack on two vehicles. one of the dead is a suspect in the attack on the "u.s.s. coal." late last night senate

7:14 am
>> another one? >> another one. oh, my goodness, this is bad. >> how many vehicles have been involved that you've seen so far? >> we cannot see, ma'am. >> reporter: bert thomas remembers driving and suddenly all he saw was blackness. >> i stuck my hand out the window and i could not see my bracelet. >> reporter: but he could hear the thuds of more collisions. >> reporter: how many crashes? >> i thought i heard three vehicles hit. >> reporter: clear sign of impact? >> clear sign of impact. never heard any squeals. >> he's coming too fast. here comes another one. >> reporter: another unanswered question, what started the marsh fire near the highway that caused all the smoke? >> the two things that we know it wasn't is not from a controlled burn because there was no prescribed or controlled burning in the area and there was no lightning. >> reporter: if the marsh fire was intentionally set, this could become a criminal case arson or other charges. fen people were killed. >> reporter: four years ago this month a 70 car pileup also on a smokey highway killed four

7:24 am
and they're 20% less likely to be treated with statins for the same numbers as men. so women need to be their own add vee indicates. >> why are they less likely? simply because they're screened less as you mentioned? >> that's one reason. the other is that the medical establishment isn't taking women's complaints as seriously. but until now there have also been lingering concerns about whether or not the statins were as effective in women. we didn't have research to show how effective they were because most early research is done on men. but now this new study showed they were just as effective for women, and they actually lower the risk of death, heart attack and stroke by 20%. >> so we should expect doctors to be prescribing more statins for women. >> we certainly hope so. if you're a women, you have high cholesterol, and you're not prescribed a statin, ask your doctor why. >> you said doctors weren't taking complaints from women seriously. how do you be a better advocate
7:25 am
for yourself and say no this is very serious, i need help with it. >> you know, erica, i think it's about not taking no for an answer. you have to make sure you're not sent away with something to calm you down. you have to make sure they listen and make sure you're screened for heart disease. >> are there any key words we should know about when we go into e.r. >> you should say if you have chest pain or any concerns. tell them about your family history, your risk factors. don't leave until you feel comfortable. >> and you're suggesting women should ask their doctors about statins. >> very much so. we're less likely to be treated so we need to go in and advocate for ourselves. >> holly, thanks. the jfk investigation left out nearly 45 minutes of audio tapes from "air force one." we're now hearing those for the first time and you'll heal them as we continue here. you're watching "cbs this

7:31 am
assassination. incredibly new information has been released. >> it comes from long lost audio tapes between "air force one" and washington bill plante tells us. bill, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, erica. for the first time, the complete audio tape from the flight from dallas to washington is available to the public online from the national archives. this newest material helps to fill in the record of they of sorrow confusion, and fear. >> roger, roger, i'm going to put mrs. rose kennedy on the line now. >> reporter: lyndon johnson and the newly sworn president and his wife laid byrd attempted to console kennedy's mother. >> thank you very much. thank you very much. i know. i know. >> mrs. kennedy -- >> all right.
7:32 am
>> >>. >> reporter: secretary of state dean rusk and others were over the pacific. they had just turned fwrak a trip to asia when the white house confirmed their worst fierce. >> we have report quoting that the president is dead that he died about 35 minutes ago. >> reporter: the full audio of transmissions from white house communications that day includes 42 minutes edited out of the original public version. it's likely to pique the interest of conspiracy theory rifts who already ask why this material was out of the original. the air force chief of staff curtis lemay had been a frequent opponent of kennedy and his washts on the day of the asass nation have always been a mystery. we learned that he was airborne even as jfk's body was being flown back to d.c. and an aide to him tried to reach his boss.
7:33 am
>> he's inbound. his code name is grandson, and i want to talk to him. it will be too late because he'll be on the ground in a half hour. >> they wonder if the aide's comments about not reaching lemay's comments may be too late could have some sinister meaning. >> i doubt that the tapes will put the conspiracy theory rifts to rest. they can't accept the proposition that a lone wolf someone as dysfunctional as lee harvey oswald could carry off the assassination of the president. >> reporter: the body was returned to washington and the new president made a promise to the nation. >> i will do my best. that is all i can do. i ask for your help. >> reporter: those 42 minutes of the flight back to washington were lost for years until the estate of kennedy's military
7:34 am
aide general chester clifton, sold his copy of the tapes to the collection at the historical dealers collection. they gave their copy to the national ar kooivs. charlie, erica. >> bill, thanks so much. also in washington this morning historian douglas brinkley, a cbs consult tant. good morning. >> good morning to you, charlie. >> why didn't clifton or the estate release them earlier? >> clifton was as extend inably chief kennedy's chief of staff. he had to handle -- he was in the dallas motorcade, clifton, and then his job was military security and communications. he was really responsible for getting jfk's body from dallas here to washington. so he was a key player in all of this drama, and he kept this tape to himself all these years. he died his wife's died. and now the family was dividing
7:35 am
the heirloom the tape was found, a manuscript dealer came in, and we now have 43 minutes more of what happens on that almost iconic and bizarre episode on "air force one" when everyone was trying to cluster together and make sense of what just occurred in dallas. >> what surprised me is he didn't notify someone that he had them and ask if they were of historic importance. this information about general lemay, what do you make of that? >> i find it somewhat odd. he had had a fierce fight in 1962 headed to the air force. he was determined that we had to fight the soviets over cuba. he felt that kennedy was spineless and weak probably the number one enemy or detractor of kennedy within government and here he is calling -- you have a colonel doorman sevening for
7:36 am
lemay lemay. we never knew where he was. you would thing he would have told people but he kept that out. who decided what 43 minutes should be cut of this tape and just discarded? so not just conspiracy theorists but scholars are going to want to reinstate some of this information. it's still the tape of code names for people. it's going to take time to sort all that out. >> doug, it's erica. good morning. >> reporter: hey erica. >> in terms of questions it raises about why it's edited out, the tapes were kept quiet for so long, beyond code name is there anything else that sticks out to you they sas this is the reason why people did not want this information out theresome. >> reporter: it gets to the heart of the warrant commission acquiring all information available and trying to let the american people know what happened or was the warrant commission a white wash to kind of put the assassination behind
7:37 am
us? we all know that gets fiercely debated. i can tell you there was a recent cbs news poll where it was something like 73% of the american people don't believe in the warren commission fully. this doesn't help any because the fact that this wasn't brought -- you know somebody edited the tape a lot of information left out was presented at the air force one tape. it creates questions. it raises eyebrows. so this is while not a gigantic historic moment this tape it's significant. what it tells us is that both the kennedy assassination review committee act of 1992 and the warren commission didn't have this. >> for historians like you, are there question about other tapes that might be out there? >> well, there's a notion that that flight is 4 1/2 hour of raw footage and while this tape is 45 or 43 minutes longer, that there was -- somewhere there
7:38 am
could be another tape edited out. i think clifton kept it because he was with them. he was probably told to -- anybody who knew he had it to keep it quiet or he kept it just squirrelled away and didn't want to draw attention. after all somebody did kill kennedy. i ranges from the mafia to cuba and didn't want to be known as the guy that was a daniel ellsberg-type figure keeping this tape in your sock drawer. >> thank you very much doug. interesting story. cape cod is supposed to be pretty quiet. but the area made famous by the kennedys is actually very busy right now for dolphins and dolphin rescues. we'll take a closer look at the effort to save the animals who keep beaching themselves. we'll investigate the wonderful world of dave. you're watching "cbs this morning."

8:11 am
plays? i thought it was unusual. >> it was quite easy to be dismissive of prince philip. he's just always there. the queen started writing to him when she was 13 years old. they've been married for 64 years. he's the oldest serving spouse of a reigning british mon ark. i think harry is aware that as the year progresses it's the queen's big party, but we need to remember philip as well. >> they came before prince philip's health scare, which i thought made the words even more endeer. he wasn't just saying it because he was ill. he just wanted to make it clear this guy means a lot to him and the family. >> i think you're right. that does make it especially poignant. prince philip was in hospital for four days over christmas. it would have been catastrophic if the worst had happened. this this would have been a year of mourning instead of a year of celebration. to hear harry step up and say, we have to acknowledge prince

philip but the fact it was said before this health scare makes it more special. >> do you find it's interesting that the comments from from harry and not from william as he's preparing to step into the queen's role? >> well, yes, i think so. william is looking to the queen for guidance. he said about the queen that she never had a blueprint. she's carved out her own path. i think talk about a special role model for william. it's incredible he has her to look to when he looks to his own rein. she's not impressed by celebrity. she's probably the world's most famous woman anyway. she's very keen to have her privacy. she's managed to really carve out a brilliant avenue, i suppose, for her private and public duty. it's something that william is really going to struggle with moving forward. he and kate are so popular. already, we're seeing where it gets difficult keeping their private and public life separate. >> and speaking of keeping your private and public life separate, i heard on the news the other day they've decided to

delay having a baby. i keep wondering if kate is thinking leave me alone, people. when we get ready we'll let you all know. i marvel at how difficult it must be for her. >> i think what's made it especially difficult is both william and charles were born within a year of their child's marriage. everyone thought, we'll hav a baby before april of 2012. but this year is very important. we have got the diamond jubilee. they're ambassadors for the olympics. there's no time for a baby. >> they're a little business si. thank you, victoria. if you love super bowl commercials, you ready for this one? bueller. bueller. oh, he's back in an ad that's getting a huge response online. we'll take a closer look at that and a little more when we return. this is "cbs this morning." ♪ ♪ ♪

8:21 am
volkswagens. it was a wonderfully successful case study. >> the darth vader ad from last year. >> so adorable. >> i love that, yes. >> so they release that a couple days before the super bowl. it racked up about 10 million views before the game online on youtube and some other video sites. since the game, another 90 milion views. if you put those together that's 100 million views. that's almost double the audience that they got during the game. >> it's huge. especially when you're spending that amount of money. obviously there's the nostalgia. star wars, the ferris. i love the whole ferris connection, but i don't look at it to buy a car. when it comes to whether or not this is successful not just the super bowl ad, but releasing it early, is there any clear data that shows a clear return on this investment? >> you know, there is actually. especially if you're trying to push a new product, for example or relaunch a product. we're seeing honda's sibling brand acura with an ad that
8:22 am
stars jerry seinfeld. it gets people excited. i think the other interesting thing that's going on here is both of these ads are pretty long. two minutes on this particular ad. two and a half minutes on the ferris bueller ad. in the game those will only be 60 seconds long. what you do by releasing it early, you let people see the full, extended version which is often a better story. >> is this one a better story? >> you know i don't know. i'm intrigued to see it cut to 60 seconds for the game. i loved the ten-second teaser they put out. i'm not sure that the two and a half minute ad lived up to the promise for me. i think if you cut it down to 60 seconds, it might be better. >> well, we could say mission accomplished because we're sitting here talking about it. >> absolutely. pr value alone. >> thank you abbey. >> thanks. >> i know what you and i will be watching. >> for sure. the airline industry is shrinking all the time. companies merging now just to

8:32 am
of shrinking capacity and service that's either diminished or nonexistent. we're seeing that even with southwestern airtran. there's another merger that just happened. so we have u.s. air saying they want to buy american. you then have delta saying they want to buy american. and now we have delta saying they want to buy u.s. air. it's a gary of musical chairs. someone's going to get left at the altar, and ultimately it's us. >> does that mean higher fares? >> law of supply and demand. i'll give you an example. airtran is pulling out of 16 cities in america, right? these are cities like allentown, p.a. sarasota florida. where do they go? the problem is they used to go to airtran. they're not there now. >> take american. what will happen to them? will private equity come in and take a position? why can't american make it alone? >> they've got about $4 billion in cash. they're cutting all their costs in bankruptcy.
8:33 am
isn't it ironic that all those airlines i just told you about who are thinking of buying it who are they looking to? british air. under the law, they can only 49% of an airline because they're a foreign ownership but a lot of people want to put the money out there. >> what's the next big deal you see? >> well u.s. air only had 8% of the market. as a result, they can't stand alone. i don't care what you say. it makes a lot of sense for u.s. air and delta as opposed to u.s. air and american because there will be so much consolidation of routes and the possibilities are endless. it doesn't mean the merger won't happen. it means there'll be a lot of horse trading. they'll have to give up slots, routes. >> i thought deregulation is supposed to be in the interest of the financial health of airlines. >> deregulation allowed bad airline management to allow government support to show how bad they really could be. are we going to look at

matter behind us. >> this room is a special ventilation room. >> reporter: he installed a one-of-a-kind room just for brazilian treatments ventilated to clear the air of formaldehyde. >> do you feel safer? >> 100% safe. i used to wear a mask and goggles. >> reporter: now californians can see on the label just how great that cost can be. for "cbs this morning," bill whitaker in los angeles. >> you had the best line. you said what are the -- >> it's a terrible terrible smechlt i heard it's great but a terrible smell. for the first time they're saying it's dangerous. >> i have a friend who won't do it. >> you weren't planning to try, were you? >> no, i was not. >> charlie's going to be busy on e bay trying to find his computer. >> that's r-o-s-e.
8:38 am
>> at "cbs this morning.." harry potter's
8:39 am
8:40 am
what happened to him? >> he was playing at the beach with his friends and they said the tide must have caught him off guard. you've seen him, haven't you? >> this morning in the fire. >> after eight "harry potter" blockbusters and it bus blockbuster with a capital "b," daniel radcliffe is starring in the next act of his career. he's starting in "women in black." >> he plays the father haunted by the death of his wife. he's decidedly less scary in
8:41 am
person. >> you were very scary in the movie. >> i'm very intimidating all five of me. >> but did you decide was it a conscious decision on your part daniel, that you said notice how neither one of us said "harry potter" is here. neither one of us said that. you're welcome. we'll talk about "harry potter" later. did you make a conscious decision to go all the way to the other side? number one it's kind of cool you're playing a dad, number one, and it is a horror film? did you decide you wanted to do something totally different than what you have done? >> i think that's the case. for any actor coming out of a franchise, for any actor, you look for as much diversity and variation as you can. i wanted to do something different that people haven't seen and show another side of me. i look different in this film a lot older. people haven't seen me in something like this before, so i think, you know i'm excited for people to see that.
8:42 am
>> you were really concerned about the connection of playing a father, about the connection you would have with the actor who played your son. so a little bit of creative maneuvering on your part. >> yes exactly. i did kind of cheat there and help myself out with that. i was -- i was -- people have seen me in a school boy outfit for ten years so it seems like a little bit of a leap for them to immediately accept me as a father. so i asked james if he would audition my real-life godson and he did and he auditioned them with five other boys and they were very good, but there's no real substitute for that chemistry, especially such a young kid. it helped me a huge amount having that chemistry with him and being able to play around with him and have fun rather than worrying if, you know about this little boy being overwhelmed as he would be on a film set for the first time when you're 4. >> is he already an act eror? >> no, no. >> that's his first role?
8:43 am
>> go, uncle daniel. what does he call you? >> he calls me uncle dan. >> i have to say one of my favorite musicals of all time because it's so much fun. you had a quite a run and were so well recognized for your work in it. >> it was -- i just had the best time, i really did. i -- it was amazing. i actually saw the show last night with nick. >> nick jonas. >> yeah. i -- it was amazing to sit and watch what we came up with in rehearsal. suddenly a year later and somebody's hands still running it. it gave me immense pride. yeah, it was fantastic, and i had a graduate time last night. it was -- at the time the curtain wentz up i started crying. i don't cry very often unless i miss people. but when i haven't seen anyone for flee weeks and dancing and being brilliant, it was very emotional. >> more broadway in your future? >> oh, absolutely.
8:44 am
i want to keep coming back for as long as i can. >> you know what i like about you? it's pretty good being daniel radcliffe radcliffe. you talk about love in your life. that life is much better with her. >> yes. >> i think that's so nice for a man to say that. >> rosie. >> why is life better for your you with her in it? >> i don't know. it's just unquestionably i'm happier, i spend less time in my head about stuff, i get -- you know, she makes me remember what's important and what's not important and what i have to be focus on and what is pointless to think about you know just -- she -- one day at time stops me from going insane which is lovely. >> great quality to have. >> and harry potter, is it something you thinking i will be harry potter for the rest of my life? it's one of those iconic characters but you've clearly moved on to other things.
8:45 am
are you okay talking about it? >> yes. i'm fine with it. people in the green room are like -- >> some people are sensitive about it. >> i think a lot of people don't like to be -- i this ink a lot of people when they try to move away from something try to put as much distance from it. it's almost like they didn't have an association with it. >> that's how we fell in love with you. >> i could never do that. ot only the film's you know encompassed ten years of my life that were amazingly formative, exciting, and full of happiness like i would never want to turn my back on them but always they're great films. i'm proud to be associated with it. they're amazingly true to the books considering how much of the books there was and they're responsible for me getting onto broadway and like nothing i've done would not be possible would that initial piece of luck. >> we have to stop you and ask you one quick question. you have apparently fallen in
8:46 am
love with american football. >> super bowl sunday. >> not just because you're living in new york but do you -- >> i have a giants cap, i'm a giants fan. >> you're ready to go. >> when i was there, i was christened a giants fan when i went into the theater. >> is it true you got into fantasy football? how does your girlfriend feel about that? >> not so good. darling, do you think i should -- i don't care. she listens. >> we like that you're pulling for the giants. we like that. >> of course, absolutely. >> we like that. >> i would say the same thing in boston. >> goo for you. >> you're a wise man. >> continued success to you. >> thank you very much. >> thank you for coming. >> "the woman in black" opens in theaters this friday. ever wonder about the price of being a celebrity? we always hear how much money they make but the price of staying in the spotlight, well, that costs some big bucks.
8:47 am
not big butts, big bucks. what's gayle thinking? we'll show

lady gaga, hello. celebrities make money in a lot of different ways but they also spend a lot. >> that's the bottom line for a story in the last issue of "new york magazine." >> jo piazza joins us. jo, nice to have you with us this morning. >> thanks for having me. >> one of the things ta stood out to a lot of us in this report is they're making money in very different waysful it's not just multi-million-dollar movie contracts. it's getting paid to tweet, hawking products overseas. how has that changed things? >> it's so interesting. this is a new celebrity economy.
8:50 am
as revenues from things like movies and tv shows are going down, we're seeing them make money off of all of these different revenue streams from showing up at clubs to making appearances to doing advertising overseas. >> how much do they get paid to show up at a club club?? >> the top end is $100,000. >> who makes that? >> kim kardashian, fergie, lady gaga. >> charlie rose. >> charlie rose. >> does anybody pay you to show up to a club? >> no one pays me to show up anywhere. >> but they're paid to keep me out. >> this is what gets me. celebrity tweeting. say actress a says, oh i love this red lipstick. i think that's great until you find out that she's paid to say that. think that changes the whole tone. shouldn't they be up front and say, look, shouldn't they tell us jo i'm a paid spokesperson for x, y, and z? >> i think they absolutely should and that's what bugs me
8:51 am
too. sometimes there's a hash tag like # #sp. but does anyone know that that means sponsor? >> the reality stars, the ones not making money off of anything else like acting or music get paid for showing up and tweeting more than the a hf-listers do. >> you know what's amazeing about this. actors have done advertising oversea. paul mckartsny. >> george clooney. >> a ton. >> why do they do it here and they don't want to do it here? >> exactly what you kbies were saying. they don't want to saturate their brand here. but over there, no one's going to see these ads for shampoo or beer or cell phones. and, again they get paid $1 million and $2 million just for showing up for a day's worth of
8:52 am
work. >> do we feel sorry for these celebrities? >> it's hard to after seeing all these figures. >> we don't feel sorry for them. however, when you look at the money that comes in there's a lot of money that goes out like security because there's demands for pictures in the paparazzi, especially if you have kids. >> absolutely. a celebrity making $18 million a year is still spending around $1 million on security and $300,000 to $700,000 on child care costs. >> wow. >> but i think as charlie pointed out, we don't feel sorry for them. that goes with the territory of being a celebrity. >> like having to face cameras. >> that's right. >> poor thing. >> yeah. the thing that gets to me jo, is everybody talks about being a brand. is that what we've come to? you're supposed to be a brand? you can answer that in less than ten seconds, jo. >> charlie's making me nervous. every celebrity is a commodity and their brand is what's important. >> thank you so much jo. that does it for us.
